IT'S possibly the most famous hoodie in Ireland, and it has now finally found a home.

When Robert Sheehan's character, Darren Treacy, was murdered at the end of the third season of RTE's 'Love/Hate', thousands of fans were left curious about the fate of the famous hooded top.

Yesterday, actor Robert Sheehan presented his character's trademark wardrobe item to his old theatre in his native Co Laois.

The blue hooded top will now be framed and hung in the Dunamaise Arts Centre in Co Laois, after Sheehan presented it to the centre's manager, Michelle de Forge.

Sheehan was presented with a certificate for his work as an ambassador to the centre where his glittering career began.

The 26-year-old actor recently revealed he misses the hit show, but hopes to catch up with his former cast mates over the coming weeks.
